I am a dark world,
a no man's land,
From the coldest of cold,
to the dryest of sand.

I am a dark world,
a world of such dread,
I am the worst of worlds,
I am a world of the dead.

I am a dark world,
a world of fright,
A world of horror,
a terrible sight!

I am a dark world,
a world of pain and sorrow,
A world of forever,
where there is no tomorrow.

I am a dark world,
a world of the bad,
A world of chains,
a world of the mad.

Author's Notes:

This is 17 years old. I found several old poems. Thank you, Joe

He, he...just about exactly the day I graduated :o)

Ack...not such a dark world is it...but at that sensitive moment in life, actually it was.

Well written Joe, great job.

Wow if you wrote this 17 years ago. Just like a good wine, you just keep getting better and better with age. Great job.

One day you will write
Darkness will disappear
Life will ignite
All will become clear

Many years from now
You will be in a new place
And you will not allow
Anything other than grace

Inside you is a light
People can't resist
Shining so very bright
Believe me I insist

One day you will inspire
Your soul will be free
Lifting spirits higher
I know others will agree

Seventeen years down the line
I hope the darkness has passed
And the colour of day vs night
Is a more comfortable contrast

Now that the time has come
I hope is all that you desire
I hope your world has become
A world of all that you require.

I think it's amazing that 17 years ago you wrote this.
I hope I can loook back in time and re-live old emotions.. good or bad, just to see the progression of life.
